Palo Verde Standard

 

This is an excellent tree selection for the desert or for xeroscapes, but it can also look good in most drought tolerant settings. This is a fast growing tree with an upright growing habit, and a beautiful spring display of yellow flowers. 'Desert Museum' palo verde is also known for its lack of thorns, its quick growth, and its neat appearance.
